very well balanced elements again, with light in the distance leading the eye into the scene. Nice. Graham

I appreciate your critique on this image Graham. I thought the sky might overpower the landscape but your observation confirms that it hasn't gotten lost. :) Thanks my friend.

Best regards, Tom

Thanks Séan. Much appreciated words my friend. :) I have an uncontrollable addiction to atmospherics I'm afraid. Cloudaholics Anonymous might be my only recourse. :)

Best regards, Tom

Great vista Tom. Are crowds still clamoring to the vortex on Airport Road? That was the big thing about 15 years ago when I visited Sedona for the first time.

When the clouds and sun combine to light up portions of the mountains, as they have done in this shot, it makes the hi-lited colors literally glow. You've caught the feeling well.

Best regards, my friend,

They are Hank. While we were at the Airport Road lookout area there were maybe a total of 10 people over the 30 minutes we were there. Not bad really. I'd heard that it could get "crowded" so I was pleasantly surprised.

The lighting was kind of magical but challenging to photograph. Very glad you feel I caught a little of the magic. :) Thanks my friend.

Best regards, Tom

Congratulations for all your fantastic gallery! Friendly greetings, Liz

Tom on February 27, 2009

Very kind of you to say Liz. Thank you for those words and yet another Y*. (you didn't think you could sneak it in your favourites without me noticing?) I'm honored. 8^)

Best regards, Tom

Great composition, Tom. I'm a big fan of photos with lots of sky. :)


Tom on February 27, 2009

As am I Arden. It has been said that I've often got my head in the clouds. :) Thanks very much for the appreciation.

Best regards, Tom

Thanks Bruce for the kind comments. Also a big thanks for the heads-up on the NPC. Will have a look at it. Not sure what I've got with a prominent door though. :) Cheers.

Best regards, Tom
